If there’s one essential you need for your bed, it’s a silk pillowcase. Silk and satin pillowcases have been popular for years, so if you don’t have one yet, keep reading! Here are 4 ways your red hair will benefit from a silk pillowcase:
1. Prevents breakage
Over time, breakage can occur from your pillow. This is because there is friction caused by rubbing your hair on the rough surface of a cotton or polyester pillow. Silk or satin pillowcases can help reduce this friction, thus preventing breakage in the hair.

2. Reduces tangles
If you’re someone who sleeps with your hair down, you might notice you wake up with a lot of tangles. The soft surface of a silk or satin pillowcase can help prevent these tangles because your hair glides more easily across the pillow’s surface.
3. Keeps hairstyles neater
We love next-day hair, but sleeping on a fresh blowout or curls can be a killer. Silk or satin pillowcases can help to keep that hairstyle looking neater while you sleep. It won’t keep it 100% perfect but it will look a lot better than it would on a cotton pillowcase.
4. Fights frizz
In addition to breakage and tangles, frizz is very common, especially for those with curly, coarse, or thick hair. Silk or satin can help to soothe that frizz and allow you to wake up with soft, better-looking hair.
